64 bit browser not working

Post by micro04 » Sat Mar 30, 2019 1:04 am

I created a application using a window7 64 bit machine which has a browser widget in one of the stacks. The program work fine on the windows machine. I then saved the program as a standalone application for windows and Linux 64 bit. I then installed that Linux application on a Linux mint 64 bit machine. Everything works ok on the Linux machine except the stack that contains the browser does not open. No errors shown.

How do I fix this problem?

The use of the Browser widget is not supported on linux/Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit LTS yet.

Well, it isn't totally true.
Just create the standalone with livecode 8 and this:

Code: Select all

#! /bin/bash
export LC_ALL= LC_NUMERIC=C
export LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=1
/opt/livecode/livecodecommunity-8.1.10.x86_64/livecodecommunity.x86_64

Max is right with this shell script (but only with LC8).
He also pointed out that using this shell script helps to have the browser widget running (at least running better) with LC 8/9 on 32bit.
(See viewtopic.php?p=153351#p153351 for more detailed instructions.)
